  OACHIRA - KALI SHRINE

Renewed as a famous Hindu pilgrim centre, this holy kshetra is housing many sacred temples for many gods and goddesses. The Parabrahma shrine is an indication of the high spiritual evolution of the builders and adores too. The uniqueness of this temple is the absence of any icon - the object of adoration. As Parabrahma is the absolute reality pervading the whole universe, would there be any necessity of installing any image for worship. The conception of the believers is as laudable as their spiritual maturity that excelled any known excellence. Here in this unique kshetra there is kali temple visited and worshipped by people of lower spiritual evolution. This temple is offering regular worship to the Mother with due rituals. The Mother due to liberal grant of boons entrenched herself in the hearts of her own admires and adorers is exercising round the clock vigil over her votaries. Among the creditable features the temple claims is the staging of mock fight between two groups of devotees to commemorate the battles fought once between the Rajas of Kayamkulam and Chempakasseri, the feudal lords, who were at logger heads with each other more often than not. It is a fantastic occasion charged with emotion and display of martial arts. Here Raja bhakti seems out shadowing Daivabhakti only in the form of mockery, but this jesting is of a rare type worth witnessing.

It lies 32 km off Quion, accessible by bus.
